Union Printers' Home Is A Splen
Example of Benefits of Organization
. SS . B
One of tbe great monuments to union
labor in the world is the Union Prin
ters' home at Colorado Springs, Colo.
in May, 1857, the first proposition to
establish a home, or asylum, for invalid.
aged or Infirm union printers, was
made to the National Typographical
union at its session in New Orleans,
La. The proposition, however, did not
meet with serious consideration. In
issr: a, committee was appointed to
consider the advisability of devising
wavs and means for the maintenance
of a home for disabled union printers,
b-it nothing came of this action until
George W. Childs and A. J. Drexel pre
spnted the International Typographi
cal union with a check for $10,000.
At the Denver convention of 1889,
Louis K. Ehnch, of Colorado Springs,
Colo offered, on behalf of the board
of trade of that city, to deed to the
International T pographical union 80
ac-cs of land one mile east of Colo
rado Springs, which, by a vote- of the
membership, was accepted that same
At a meeting of the board of trus
tees, on November 19. 1890, it was de
termined to build a $50,000 edifice, and
a. building committee was appointed to
have charge of the work. On March
1" JS9J, this committee awarded the
contract for the mam building at a
cost of about $60,000. May 12, 1892,
was set aside for the dedication of the
home. The exercises were held In the
open space in front of the home.
The hospital building is located Just
south of the main structure, covering
a space of 60x90 feet, and was origi
nally but two stories in height. The
demands for admission to this build
ing having outgrown its capacity, the
board of trustees, at Its annual meet
ing in' September. 1902., decided to In
crease the number 6f rooms by ddins
another story. The architects who de
signed the original building were in
structed to prepare plans for the new
addition and to carry out the general
scheme of the lower stories. ThiB
method was followed, and work was
commenced on the improvement early
In January 190S, and completed In
April of the same year. The architec
iture of the hospital is in keeping with
,that of the main building, the super
' structure being of Castle Rock lava
In 1904 10 tents were erected near the
hospital building for the use of tuber
culous patients. They proved to be
such a valuable acquisition to the hos
pital service in the treatment of lung
trouble that 10 more were added In
1907. 'With 20 tents and the hospital
given up to tuberculosis residents,
there was need of a central building
for their use. To supply this want, a
new building, called the solarium, was
erected in 1907-
The experimental stage in open-air
treatment of tuberculosis has long
since been passed. Fully 50 percent.
of the patients who have the advantage
of "tent life" and the regenerating rays
of the Colorado sun have recovered
health and strength and have been en
abled to again assume business duties.
There are many tent colonies in Colo
rado, but few of them compare with the
tuberculosis sanatorium at the home.
Many people suppose that the expenses
of the. home are defrayed by endow
ments. Sch Is not the case. Since
the original gift of Messrs. Childs and
Drexel, the home has received but one
endowment, that being made by Her
man S. Hoyt, trustee of the estate of
Julia A. Ladd. of Shirley, Mass. Thiii
bequest of $1,100, lees-the Inheritance
tax of the state of Massachusetts,
brought the home $1,045. Under the
terms of the bequest no portion of the
original amount can be used, but such
interest as may be received thereon
goes toward the expenses of the home.
"With this one exception, the home has
Since its completion, all expenses of
the home, including cost of mainten
ance, have been paid from money con
tributed by the members of the Inter
national Typographical union, the reve
nue being provided by setting apart
a certain portion of the monthly con
tributions to the union. On March 1,
1908 the monthly contribution of each
member was placed at 15 cents, St
which figure it now stands.
During the year ended May 31, 1911.
the expenditures from the home fund
were $87,631.67. Included in this
amount Is all money paid for imprdve
ments and repairs on the buildings and
grousds farming expenses, insurance,
food suplies. clothing, pensions, medical
attendance, transportation of residents
who vacate, burials, salaries of em
ployes and officers, printing, and the
expenses of meetings of the board of
trustees. Deducting $13,915.36 ex

the two upper stories of the library ad
dition; $424.57 for an enlargement of
the superintendent's cottage, and $77.42
for the instalation of two sanitary
drinking fountains on the grounds, the
net cost of maintenance is found to be
$68,739.24 or $541.25 per year; $45.10
per month for each resident. When
it is remembered that this sum covers
all expenses in connection with the
up-keep of the home property and the
care of its patients in a manner not
excelled, if equaled,, in any similar in
stitution, the cost will not appear ex
cessive. Prom the opening of the home in
July, 1892. to May 51. 1911. 1,198- appli
cant have been admitted to the home.
Any member of the International Typo
graphical union, who has been such
for 10 continuous years, may apply for
admission to the home. Members suf
fering from pulmonary tuberculosis
may be admitted to the sanatorium at
any time. The average number of
residents during the fiscal year 1911.
The management of the institution,
which 'will accommodate about 170. is
In the hands of a superintendent, who
acts under the direction of the board
of trustees, one of whom is a resident
of Colorado Springs. The annual meet
ings of the board of trustees are held
at the home.
In addition to the home and sanator
ium, the International Typographical
union- has other benefactions equally
as laudable. For years it has paid a
death benefit, and three years ago an
old-age pension fund was inaugurated,
under the rules of which members at
taining the age of 60 years, with a con
tinuous membership of 20 years, are
entitled to a pension of $5 per week.
It has established a technical school
for the benefit of Journeymen and ap
prentices, in order that they may per
fect themselves In their chosen calling,
and that the art of printing may be ad
vanced, thereby performing a, public
and patriotic function.
